Molly joined the Capitol Illini team in August, 2011 after moving from Star Prarie, a small town in Wisconsin. She is a 2008 veterinary technology graduate from Globe University in Woodbury, Minnesota. She is also currently a student at the University of Illinois-Springfield, working on a Bachelor's of Business Administration. Molly's favorite part of her job is helping pets, and treats her patients as part of someone's family. She enjoys keeping them well and when sick, nursing them back to health. Prior to Capitol Illini, Molly gained experience with both large and small animals, through a private veterinary practice and at the University of Large Animal Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Molly is a member of the American Animal Hospital Association, the Illinois State Veterinary Medical Association, and the North American Veterinary Technician Association. Molly shares her home with Dash, a 5 year old Dachshund rescue, and Kitty, a 4 year old gray dilute tortie. Outside of work Molly enjoys spending time with her daughter, Allison, cooking, reading, watching dirt bike racing and cheering on the Green Bay Packers.
